BMI Werndale Hospital is now offering robotics-assisted knee surgery using the Smith & Nephew NAVIO™ Surgical System.

The NAVIO™ Surgical System aids the surgeon in planning and executing your knee replacement surgery, while potentially improving recovery times. You could be back to normal activities, including sports, as much as six months faster than with traditional surgery.1

The NAVIO™ system allows our surgeons to operate with even greater precision, allowing for a more bespoke approach.2 This can mean less pain, a more natural feeling knee, and a quicker recovery process.3 The technology also bypasses the need for a CT scan.4

If you are considering full or partial knee replacement surgery, the NAVIO™ surgical system may be the most appropriate choice for you.

NAVIO™ Surgical SystemAn advancement for orthopaedic surgeons

The NAVIO™ system is an advancement in the way orthopaedic surgeons perform partial and total knee replacements.

The system comprises a surgical planning, navigation and intra-operative visualisation system combined with a hand-held smart instrument for bone sculpting.

Every NAVIO™ procedure has an individual plan based on each patient’s unique anatomy. The system works in conjunction with the surgeon’s skilled hands to achieve precise positioning of components during surgery.

The system establishes boundaries for the robotic hand piece by collecting information unique to your knee, allowing the surgeon to balance your joint and position each component with great precision.

This level of accuracy can help improve the function, feel and potential longevity of your knee implant.5
